I would contact DELL technical support. They may be able to provide a way to clear it without opening the notebook and clearing the password via a switch or jumper.

How to disable Hard drive password


Did you clear your BIOS to rid yourself of the bios password first? Just making sure you are really looking for the hdd password (which you set while setting the BIOS password I assume) There are some tools out there to help you remove/rest the hdd password but lets be sure that's what you need to do first. Be warned, the tools don't always work and unless you remember the password you might be looking at complete data loss and a new hard drive.

Bypass bios setup password hp pavillion


Step 1:
All computer BIOS chips have a backdoor master password designed to be used in the event that you can't remember the password you set yourself or by a tech support agent who is fixing your machine. These passwords are set at the factory level and do not change, no matter what model of computer you own. You will use this password to bypass the currently set password in the event that you need to access your HP BIOS but cannot.

Turn on your HP computer. Strike the "F2" keyboard key. Your HP computer will attempt to load your BIOS. You will be prompted to enter your current password. Type "merlin" into the password prompt and hit "Enter." This is the backdoor BIOS password for HP brand computers. You will now bypass the user defined password and the BIOS screen will load as normal.

How do I get my Vostro to boot from disk instead of HD It has been password protected and I do not have the password.


Turn on your compter and repeatedly press F2 (or F12) to enter the BIOS set-up. When you get to the BIOS, change the order of the start-up to read from your disk first.

Good luck!
